Itty Bitty FO:
(I look dumb in this picture (I know, big shock) so no face, sorry)This is the capelet from The Purl Stitch book, but I made mine in Koigu (I am still so in love with Koigu!). It took 2 skeins, this is color P858 for those who must know, and I made mine a bit shorter than the pattern called for since I got bored. Took about a (non-work) day to do and I lurve it! So cute.
(Click on this image for closeup of stitch and colors)To carry on with the Koigu-rific post, look!
This is my Koigu Sunset, although some colors may get changed around before the item is knitted. This has been getting collected for over a year now, it started with the reds/oranges in the middle, and then today we got a HUGE shipment of new colors from Koigu, so I bought, oh, 23 more. Oops.
My original idea was to knit something prismatic, with the colors fading into eachother. But there were too many colors I didn't care for, so now I'm doing a variation, based on a great picture of a sunset that only exists in my head. =) This will eventually be a very big shawl. I have a tentative deadline (again, in my head only) to do this for November, but we'll see.
And this is yet another Koigu project in the works. There are a few possibilities for what this will turn out to be, but even the colors aren't completely defined yet. This one started with the blues in the middle and built out from there, but I want this one to have more stark changes between colors which is why this one doesn't flow like the last one. If I get to this project before next winter (and I mean NEXT winter), it'll be a shock.
Off to go swatch the colors together and play with stitch patterns . . .
